Speed limit change
45 mph zone extended through City, speed limit reduced on edges of town
DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS –July 14, 2017- In an effort to increase safety along U.S. 290 through the Dripping Springs area, the Texas Department of Transportation in cooperation with the City of Dripping Springs, has extended the 45-mph zone through town. This includes the stretch of highway from Crow Ranch Road (near the water tower) to just west of Roger Hanks Parkway (near Tractor Supply). When school resumes, please be mindful that the speed limit is 30 mph in school zones along this stretch of highway.
On the outer edges of the City, speed limits on U.S. 290 have been reduced overall by 5 mph from the Blanco County line to the Travis County line. On the west side of town, the speed limit is 50 mph from Spring Lane to just West of McGregor Lane, where the speed limit then becomes 60 mph. The stretch of highway west of McGregor to 281 is now 65 mph.
Headed into Austin, the speed limit is 60 mph from Crow Ranch Road to Nutty Brown Road. A map depicting the speed limit changes can be found on the city’s website, www.cityofdrippingsprings.com.
